The prosecution case in the trial of Ibrahim Halawa in Egypt is set to reach a verdict next week.
In April, Halawa asked the then Taoiseach Enda Kenny to help free him from his prison in Cairo after his trial was postponed.
Now, Leo Varadkar said he’s going to talk to the Egyptian President about Halawa’s involvement. Meanwhile, Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney said he welcomes the indications that the trial is now coming to an end.
21-yr-old Halawa was detained during Muslim Brotherhood protests in Cairo in 2013.
He was one of 400 people who were accused of conspiracy for murder.
